Cheap hotels near St. Mark's Square in Venice, Italy

One of Europe’s most famous town squares, St. Mark’s Square (Piazza San Marco) is home to St. Mark’s Basilica. The church is an impressive structure marked by archways and granite decoration.

The public square is surrounded by pre-Renaissance buildings and monuments and has a brick herringbone-patterned pavement underfoot. St. Mark’s Square—and the droves of pigeons that live in it—are bordered by high-end boutiques, fancy restaurants and pricey cafés. Take your photos, enjoy the scenery, but look elsewhere for cheap eats and souvenirs.
